Amazon's got Sandstorm for 22.99 now if you want to save on gas. I've got Amazon Prime so it works best for me (Now that I think about it, Amazon Prime would be an awesome Autobot name)

I got Blitzwing and Springer when they went up on Amazon and the good thing is that the cost of both qualified me for free shipping. So, win-win. If there's another Voyager you want, it's worth it. I don't hunt often but I was on a mission one day for a Sandstorm. :)

Livonia TRU had a Construct Bot Bumblebee. I didn't see any others. I didn't know those were going to be $25. Easy pass at that price.

Livonia Walmart North had a full set of FOC Wreckers.

The Farmington Target still has 3 of the Predacon Rising two packs. Still no sight of the giant Predaking, though.

Weapon: Photon Blaster
Ann Arbor/Saline Road Meijer had 3 Blitzwings and 1 Springer as of 8:45 this morning. I liberated Sandstorm. tfpredaking got me a Sandstorm(thank you, thank you!), but it had a crooked pin in one of the ankles. It looked like it would break the hinge after a few transformations. So I exchanged it for the one there. Nothing else new.

Man, I love these guys!

Flint Toys R Us got in one case of MP Soundwaves. 2 per case. I got there at opening and luckily got one. Good luck everyone looking for one!

Haha! the guys over on the TFW thread are bitching that the 2 that Flint got were sold out. I'm sure they think it's a scalper. You should go over there and post a picture! :grin:

Cool that you found one!

Congrats on the MP Soundwave. I'm losing hope of getting one. AA TRU had only 2 today and were immediately bought at opening. Looks like the distribution will be few and poor. From what I can postulate from the business side, Hasbro doesn't make much money off of them since the MP toys actually belong to Tomy and Hasbro purchases it from them. Also TRU doesn't really care since they would rather pack their semi's full of back to school supplies than collector toys at this time of year. If they really thought they could make cash off of it, they would have pushed it to the Christmas time frame and there would've been tons of boxes full of them like when MP Prime came out last year.

Although expensive, the only way to guarantee getting MP toys are preordering the Takara ones as soon as they get announced (and I'm sure there's no way Hasbro will be bringing the Autobot cars over - very little profit as well as seeking auto-maker licenses).

On another note, I bit the bullet and bought the remainder of the Abominus legends off of eBay. I was hesitant paying extra for them at first, but once I had them in hand, I felt a huge wave of nostalgia since it brought me back to when I was a kid and saved up my money to get both the original G1 Abominus and Computron. The colors are spot-on (except for Hun-Grrr). Felt like a little kid again. I guess that's why I collect.

The manager at TrU was telling me today that the Soundwaves weren't supposed to be on the truck today. They weren't supposed to get any till later in August. Who knows? Maybe they're going to get bigger shipments in eventually...

I saw a large number of those big, Ultimate Class Optimus Primes at the TRU in Madison Heights, 14 Mile and John R. The ones with the weird, spinning circular missile launcher. They also had a single Voyager Ultra Magnus. Still no Predaking. :/

I was the bald one.
Congrats on getting one!
My friend got there a little after opening on Saturday and got the last one. They still had it behind the service desk.

Acquired the new Kreo Combinbers@the Allen Park Target. There are at least 2 of each set left(Defensor/Abominus/Piranacon). Nothing else of note.

Happy Hunting.
I told the fire to go **** itself, and it did.

Botcon 2005--Souvenirs Lazerbeak, Buzzsaw
Botcon 2009--Souvenir Sweeps
Botcon 2010--Souvenirs Rapido, Scorch/Shattered Glass Ravage


MISP preferred, but will consider opened NM/Complete, especially for older figures. Lots of TFs for trade! Please PM any inquiries, serious interest only!

A friend and I just grabbed the two MP Soundwaves out on the floor at Livonia TRU. The woman at the service counter said they had more in the back. I didn't even think to ask about Acid Storm.

Despite my earlier rant of doubting that I'd ever find a Soundwave, Ann Arbor TRU got a lot in (around 16 or so). Same with Acid Storm. 1 per customer.

Thanks GM! Just scored the last SW at Livonia TRU. Guy ahead of me bought 2. Didn't sound like a scalper when I talked to him though and not a Seibertronian.
Well, that's just Prime...
